to a march first 20013 planning review that the changes to the project don't have any further environmental effect i think this is a - referred to a notice to file. this wasn't in the packet. and it's not at all clear where that's available for review. i assume it's buried in the planning departments files. i would compare this to the earlier discussion about a washington where there was any addendum. there was discussion about the. so in the future i would hope that the document is referenced in the calendar item etc. so i hope to get an answer to that and finally, i'm not sure given the location of this project what is relationship is to the earlier 8 washington that was just talked about. it sounds like this is on drum and near jackson. is there some relationship can someone explain that >> thank you, mr. cruise. members of the commissioners while it is physically the same sewer that moves along those or along the alignment their separated in need. where respect to washington we feel we need to create this redundant line because of the north shore main. physically their close to each ot
for the changes. yesterday, i reviewed the primary results of our assessments. we're taking a number of steps to review accident costs on the program. we're essentially eliminating the organizational - we also have significantly reduced city anti consultant at the prom level and we've taken a number of steps to transition our projects to city staff and we'll continue to make that go forward. i think we're far long enough to give you a preview and i'll give you a thorough presentation in april but schedule wise you ail our projects will be delivered by the july 16th deadline except for two projects. we also have the schedule of the creek project formerly known as the creek filter project that project schedule has been debated until early 2019. keep in mind that project is tied to the dam project and can't be completed until the dam is completed. budget wise we know that it will exceed the budget we're still working out all the numbers. and when you look at costs so far based on the preliminary costs but at the same time we've realized savings of 20 projects. the one project that we have has th

[inaudible] first shot >>> so, i'm very caution to say it took a lot of hard work, i remember the day we walked into the office to a 40 million deficit we had to renegotiate our contract and peenings for the first time and pension that happens an issue in california were part of the state system and still not ready for the shake-out on the development and so, i'll like to think it's -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] level and i think that what it gibbs you time do is to start working on some of these dreams and really give development opportunities and that is what it's like despite the evidence -- the general fund and in our economic outlet team and that we -- [inaudible] and working and -- of that and i know -- and i worked on chinese investments because we are looking at capital investment an
a code clean up and nick cal changes made to the planning code. over time as we noted some clarifications and corrections that needed to be made. before i invite anne marie rogers from the planning department to kind of walk you through some of those changes, there is a nonsubstantive amendment that needs to be made on page 93, line 24. basically refers to section 315 of the code which has been deleted recently and is now section 415. so, with that i want to invite anne marie rogers here. >> thank you, supervisor. and welcome to the board. anne marie rogers from the planning department and i'm here to go over a little bit of this pretty large ordinance that is before you. as you know, the people of the city of san francisco and the board of supervisors care deeply about the planning code and as a result of that it is amended about 50 times per year. that results invariably in some mistakes and some unintended consequences. as supervisor tang described, there is one ordinance found since the introduction last week, and i do have a couple other changes that i'd like to describe as well as j

number 1 21065, legislation changing the planning code to create the polk street alcohol use and tobacco paraphernalia restrictions. and to discuss that, supervisor chiu's office. >> good evening, commissioners. >> thank you so much for allowing me the opportunity to come here and talk to you about our legislation, my name is any, chan i am a david khao*u. >> the lower polk street corridor which is in the supervisor's district spans from fer elstreet to polk street and it has a lot of great night life, but we have heard that have been quality of life issues in the corridor because of a saturation of liquor, establishments and in this section of lower polk street. the planning department has provided us data about exactly how many liquor licenses exist in this span of 6th streets and the side streets, there are about 45 existing alcohol permits in the 6-block region. and if we also include middle polk street. which goes up to fillbert street and we are laobing at a total of 121 liquor licenses. and so we do what we have heard from the neighborhood and, what we do feel is that we have rece
in the conference were initially skeptical about this, but because of some changes, they decided not to change the age at which the medicare changes would begin hitting. republicans have been promising for years that if you are 55 or older, you will not have to worry about any of these medicare changes. they were thinking of changing that at 56. there was an outcry and they abandoned that plan. now the moderates do seem to be on board. host: the washington times reporting this morning when it comes to the affordable care act, senator ted cruz, texas republican, said he will offer an amendment to delay funding for the affordable care act until the economy improves. this is an amendment to a continuing resolution to keep the government funding that the senate will work on this week. it is winning support from other republicans like senator marco rubio of florida. jonathan strong, senate democrats will also unveil a budget tomorrow. guest: the senate budget is more notable in the sense that it has been since 2009 that senate democrats passed a budget. so this is going to be a more significant pol

changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how we view philosophy of free will and human control on the criminal side versus the civil side and not surprisingly on both sides "the state wins" because on the criminal side you go to prison and on the civil side, you get incarcerated civilly. >> i don't think that's much of a disconnect. i think -- so i agree with you the test has changed. that's not what i'm talking about. if you look at the kind of distribution of behavior, right, if we think the people at the high end of the distribution have p

of which have changed over to republican. so it gives a little evidence foffer that long-term party change as well. here in the republican controlled chambers, you see a stark difference. republicans become more successful. particularly republican men are the most successful about legislating about women's issues. particularly republican men have the least to say about women's issues. they introduce the fewest bills and they pass the fewest bills. the south dakota democratic women did not even introduce anything, so they had nothing to pass. so while this is better, i saw all these partisan differences and they did not really match with a lot of research prior to that. so i am working on now trying to understand both of these party changes at the same time, especially this long-term change in how democratic and republican women see women's issues. but i wanted to point something out. i think i mentioned what has been termed the party gap. i see a big difference between democratic women increasing and increasing their election to office and republican women, as someone put it, flatlining. i

signal about our collective desire to really make positive changes on market. and i know that we obviously can't do the major changes on market until we have studied and environmentally cleared it. but you know, it is challenging when we have items come back for more planning money whether it is a contract amendment or whatever it is. when we have not seen the changes that i know that we all want and i know that you want as well. so i just wanted to put that out there in terms of additional plans for short term trials. >> right, point taken. >> okay. are there any other more? >> as i said we are putting together a list, and i am trying to figure out which can be specifically in short term and working with our materials under advisement under to which would be better set for environmental review and happy to share that with you at a later point. >> thank you. >> sure. >> madam chair? >> madam chair? >> yes, >> hoping that i could follow up on commissioner weiner's comments? >> thank you. >> i have to echo what commissioner weiner just said from my perspective, this feels like grou

to what we heard from them in the past. they want to change medicare for people starting in 2024 and turn it into more of a voucher program where people go out and buy their own private health insurance. they want to block grant things like medicaid and food stamps so that it goes through state funding. it changes from an open entitlement program to something that will only support people as long as the money lasts. and they want to unwind some things that federal government spends money on, like housing giants fannie mae and freddie mac. but these are really policies that we have heard from them before. there wasn't a lot of new substance there. >> brown: in fact you were at the press conference. i was watching a reporter pointed that out to paul ryan. he was sort of... we saw a little bit of it. he was unapologetically continuing on, no matter what happened in the election, right? >> there's a feeling on the part of the house republicans that although the presidential election was lost for the republican party, the house republicans feel like they still maintain the majority in the hous
. then he changed it to paths of prosperity. that's the one he stuck with today. well to paraphrase shakespeare a ryan budget by any other name would still smell unsweet. it would eliminate most of obama-care, it would repeal financial regulation, and it would make major cuts to medicare. sounds great. here he is trying to convince americans that they want this tired 'ol lemon of a plan. >> it's a path to prosperity, a responsible balanced budget. we believe we owe the american people a balanced budget. for the third straight year we've delivered. >> michael: congressman, what you owe the american people is respect. they're smart enough to understand that you introduced the exact same budget during the election and you lost. jay carney today said that the president wants to trim medicare but with a scalpel not an axe. and ryan let slip his real plan for medicare system. >> this to us is something that we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the healthcare system for the american people. >> michael: that was bushan it was so man. was it a freudi
of the things i want to point out is that in terms of the changes currently taking place in california's criminal justice system is that we have embarked on a very, very large experiment and that's called realignment. prison population in california is going to approach by -- or sometime next year the federal mandate of 130,000. we've already released some 50,000 individuals to serve their time locally, and these offenses that we were talking about here are currently in the list of offenses that were to be served in county jails now. and if the notion here is to provide services and treatment to these individuals from a practical point of view, and i lean heavily on my experience as a misdemeanor prosecutor for all those years when we did possession offenses, when we tried many, many under the influence offenses, especially heroin, i don't see that under the current system that reducing these penalties from felony to misdemeanor is going to have any incentive for this population to obtain treatment. i also do not agree that under this measure that locally there will be additional money

a strongly center itself, a person, in our brain through its changing itself in a powerful, plastic way. we're also constructed through these same processes to attach to the other people, to the other things we are close to in life. that is the basis of the attachment of the mother to the child or the child to the mother. through millions of the events of contact and interaction, all of those counts in ways that actually grow the child into the person that is the mother. we are constructed to build attachments between mother and child, between friends, across our families, and across our communities. this is something that we have to nourish, that we have to keep alive, that we have to keep healthy. we're constricted to do this in a bridge for by the way our brains are constructed, by the way we are constructed and live our lives. i want to say a special thing about plasticity but that is the son of a process -- that is that the processes in place are reversible. we have studied this, and it demonstrated this to be so. these studies begin by looking at something like an animal like a rat th
or comparable worth was changed in the charter. the unions proposed it. they agreed to it. they wanted the right to bargain about health premiums and about all of these things, and that is why we have the formula, the charter factors that we have and the labor language that we have, so i think that we can do our best as an agency to ensure as i hope we do and i think we do, to ensure that we don't have discriminatory wage setting practices and we do and i don't believe for example if we're having will difficult hiring an industrial painters and we need to increase the pay and does that mean we should look back at a classification from 25 years ago from a study and not our own study and cobbled together in the interest of time from the state of washington, city of concord, a number of other public agencies, so we actually have to respond to what we're obligated to do under the charter and that's what we're doing here. >> and so comparable worth has been changed to a new standard but not everyone is clear to what it is? >> well, i think it's really hard to reconstruct what it is because
-- and we have cards that you could fill out and questions. this promises to be a year of reform and change like we have never seen, and we now see prisoner reentry programs being implemented. we're still spending too much money and resources and not enough on rehabilitation and reentry. this november, the voters will decide on limiting the three strikes law. issues and measures long overdue. it is clear there is much more that needs to be done. according to a study that was published this month -- since 1989, 2000 people have been wrongfully incarcerated and they served collectively, 10,000 years. an average of 11 years person. i would like to thank the people who made this summit possible. memoranda -- amy devon -- many volunteers and all of our speakers and panelists. i would like to thank the co- sponsors, and the bar association of san francisco. i would like to thank them for their help and support. it is my pleasure to introduce the president elect of the bar association of san francisco. they provide conflict attorneys to handle cases when a defender is not available. >> i am the pr

someone would want to do. you will get a tax credit. if you need to make changes in the structure of your premises, there are also tax credits for that. most of these cases start with a letter. a demand letter. that is usually signed not by a lawyer, but by it up plaintive. the plaintiff may not be a professional plaintiff. that does not make any difference. the defense has been tried in court. is a civil rights statute. -- it is a civil rights statute. they can be a perfectly legitimate plaintiffs to bring a lawsuit, and there are a number of people who belong to disability organizations that actually, that is what their livelihood is, bringing these lawsuits. the gentleman over here, who was also a lawyer knows of at least one case involving two lawsuits. they started all neighborhoods. the target places like san francisco because this is an old city with old buildings, virtually none of which comply. we only have new construction that would be billed to 1988 compliance standards, usually. whatever kind of business you have, the building part does not enforce ada compliance. you have yo
, if you keep your coverage, and it meets the requirement -- you don't change the coverage. for example, you cannot significantly reduce or cut benefits. you cannot raise co-insurance charges. you cannot significantly raise the compayment charges. you cannot significantly raise deductibles. big question out there and i don't have an an increase, but trying to find out is there any way for an employer to provide money to the employee to buy their individual coverage? and you just heard that hra are not a viable option. when i asked about 125 and cafeteria plans, i'm getting mixed answers and i'm not sure that the irs has determined what exactly the answer is. maybe you know more than i do, but if it is going to be able to get that money to the employee on a pre-tax basis, that could have significant ramifications to an employer on whether they provide insurance or they don't provide insurance. so it's out there, and when you look at the subsidies, especially if you are under $50,000 in income, the subsidies are really, really significant for the employee and their dependents. so that
have got to change the trajectory of this country. we capital sustain ourselves if we go to $20 trillion, $20 trillion debt. whether you're a democrat, republican, libertarian, whatever you are, independent, you should want a strong monetary policy and a strong economic policy. and we have got a few more years left, and this is a good start right here in the senate if we can get this bill up and pass it and the house will do something. we will fund the government until september 30, which we are supposed to do. that way we can start on the 14 budget -- the 2014 budget and maybe go to regular order is what we would like in the appropriation process and not go from crisis to crisis. what we have done in the house and the senate and the white house is involved in this, too, in recent years, we have gone from -- lurched from crisis to crisis, and then we come up to the deadline and people say oh, we have got to have certainty, so we kick the can down the road just a few more yards, but that's not the way to do business. this country is too important. the business community needs cer
relationship is first established and annually in paper form, even if no policy changes have occurred. my bill would require institutions to provides these notices only if they have changed the policy or practice related to the privacy of the consumer. this may seem like a simple little change, but its impact on financial institutions is significant. requiring these institutions to send annual notices even when no changes have made are redundant, unnecessary and costly. mr. speaker, this bill will permit financial institutions to redirect these resources towards lending, staffing and lowering the cost of financial services. for consumers, these mailings typically serve to clog up mailboxes and confuse even the best of us. in fact, a recent voter survey indicated that fewer than one quarter of the consumers read the privacy notifications they receive and over 3/4 would be more likely to read them if they were only sent when the institution changed its policies. this bill will make the mailings more significant stop consumers because they would only come after a change in policy. let me reiterat

, the approval of the keystone pipeline, and it opens federal lands for drilling. major changes for medicare and medicaid. by 2024, medicaid patients would be able to choose between medicaid and a private plan. it also includes means testing for wealthy seniors. as for medicaid, that becomes part of a block grant program that would be administered by states. let me bring in "usa today's" washington bureau chief, susan page, and perry bacon. i want to start with paul ryan who laid out a lot of details in this op-ed in the "wall street journal" today. here's part of what he writes. "the truth is, the nation's death is a sign of overreach. government is trying to do too much, and when government does too much, it doesn't do anything well. so a balanced budget is a reasonable goal, because it returns government to its proper limits and focus." this seems, susan, pretty consistent with the position that republicans have had. so is there more a statement of what the republicans want, sort of a show piece here? >> it's interesting, chris, we've seen in the last week or two some better, more biparti
